That's exactly what we want to address in Drupal 6.  :)

Agreed.  I think both Ber's, Earl's and Adrian/Vlado/chx/Dries/core's  
efforts are well worth pursuing.  They all serve the same purpose --  
making Drupal more accessible to themers.

Jeff: would be great to see some of your themer training feedback  
flow back into core.
